A Christmas Carol - Kansas City Repertory Theatre

A Christmas Carol

Nov 17 - Dec 24 at Spencer Theatre

Kansas City’s favorite holiday tradition is back for its 37th season, with an all-NEW adaptation by KCRep Artistic Director, Eric Rosen! A ripping good telling of the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the curmudgeonly businessman who requires the intervention of a few spectral guides to understand the true meaning of Christmas and life. Complete with lively musical numbers, ornate costumes, and dashing stagecraft, Dickens’ classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what’s really worth celebrating – at the holidays, or any time! A Kansas City Holiday Tradition!

This show runs 2 hours long, with one 20-minute intermission.
This show utilizes strobe light and smoke effects.
